The idea had already been done years earlier in the movie "The Beast of Hollow Mountain" but "Gwangi" is the better known of the two. 'Gwangi' was originally conceived by Willis O'Brien, the man who did the special effects for ''Film/KingKong1933''.

* InformedSpecies: Gwangi is supposed to be an ''Allosaurus'', but he looks more like a ''TyrannosaurusRex'' with three fingers.

* DomesticatedDinosaurs: Attempted twice, succeeds with the Eohippus. But fails with Gwangi himself.

* {{Greed}}: Both Tuck and Bromley catch a bad case of this when they see the Eohippus. T.J. isn't immune either, once Gwangi is caught she planned on using him to make a fortune in her show. Needless to say, in the end nobody got what they wanted.
* InfantImmortality: The little boy Lope survives both the Pteranodon attack in the middle of the movie, and Gwangi's rampage near the end. Pretty much anyone else who crosses the Dinosaurs' path aren't so lucky.

* DumbDinos: Gwangi is of the marauding-monster variety - he leaves an elephant he kills uneaten before targeting humans.
